Armed with tubes of bright hair dye and a creative vision, celebrity colorist Daniel Moon is probably the man behind some of your favorite celebrities’ funky locks. Years before he became a wizard of hair dying, Moon was stationed all across the globe as a U.S. Marine in his early 20s—an experience he said pushed him to work in a creative space. Upon his departure from the Marines, Moon went to beauty school, where he put his ideas to work, developing his painterly approach to coloring hair.
After traveling throughout Cuba and doing hair on the road, Moon landed a coveted position at the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood. There, he perfected his coloring skills and built up his portfolio.
Since then, the colorist has worked with everyone from Kanye West to Kid Cudi to Madonna.
